Yellow Book exhibit
The Fenwick Library is currently hosting an exhibit, “The Yellow Book and the Age of Decadence,” featuring the famous 1890s British magazine, The Yellow Book. The Yellow Book was a main symbol of the decadent “Gay ‘90s” era, just before modernism, and writers such as Henry James, Max Beerbohn and William Butler Yeats were published by the magazine. The exhibit materials are on loan from Roger Lathbury, professor of English, and will be on display through November.
